Cops take down drugstore robber carrying GPS-tagged pill bottle – New York News

The NYPD has been using the GPS-enabled bait bottles for more than a year.

Luigi Cappel‘s insight:

This is such a great story. Apparently more than 100 people have been caught after robbing pharmacies, where they have stolen ‘bait bottles’ containing a GPS tracking device.

 

The only real problem with this technology is that they could catch so many offenders that they won’t have anywhere to put them. Perhaps that’s a good problem though.

 

This technology is becoming much cheaper and I suspect that these types of story will become common place. If you have items that are irreplaceable or are operating in a high risk environment, you might want to consider how you can protect your valuables.
